In your opinion, what is the golf industry outlook for the remainder of 2020? by pseither | Apr 16, 2020 | Uncategorized | 33 comments 33 Comments Pages:«1234» Anonymous on April 15, 2020 at 12:00 am I think that a lot will depend on when we are actually back up and close to normal. What does that mean? Pro shops open, club tournaments being played, lessons being given, etc; Here in the northeast we�ve been hit so hard it could be mid-late summer before we are at that point. If that�s the case I think the year will be a disaster for all but the strongest of clubs. Look for a new normal in 2021.

This too shall pass. Log in to Reply Anonymous on April 15, 2020 at 12:00 am I don’t think our facilities will open until June. I believe all areas of the golf operation must be looked at and revised. The new normal will be nothing like we’re used too and many things such as lessons and golf outings will see a dip.

It’s obvious we won’t be able to meet our fiscally budgeted numbers at our respective operations but I think the enthusiasm of PGA Professionals will help keep the game thriving.

Social Distancing and Personal Safety will be paramount. Concerned for many operators and the industry. Revenue streams will be much different.

As we move forward there will be many activities that will be unavailable for the foreseeable future, while golf could serve as one of the few recreational or social endeavors people may be able to pursue. From a financial standpoint, I think it is safe to say that 2020 will be an anomaly.

Obviously many new safety/sanitation protocols will be put into place. Guest events and shotgun starts may be eliminated.

People will not want to travel that much this year so they will play more golf at home, but this will definitely hurt resorts.

People are worried about jobs and money. 1 person only being able to ride in golf cars, less tee times, older age group afraid to be by other people. Shops will need to look to scale back on orders and with a condensed calendar for some states, scheduling events could be tough on outings and cart rentals. Golf companies and pros will need to work together to keep open communication and monitor orders for summer fall. The thought of going to seven days open for private clubs is a real thing and golf pros cleaning golf cars will be an every day task. Hope people continue to have the itch and find their way to golf courses. Log in to Reply Pages:«1234» Submit a Comment Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
